CLEVELAND, OH, September 14, 2018: Cleveland Ballet invites members of the press to attend an Open Rehearsal of the Fall Collection, a series of fast-paced, seductive works featuring the world-premiere of an original one-act ballet by artistic director Gladisa Guadalupe. The show will premiere October 19-20 at the Ohio Theatre in Playhouse Square.

The first act of the show begins with the aptly-named Momentum, an up-tempo Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in G minor, then continues with two famous and more classic pieces, Don Quixote pas de deux by Marius Petipa and from the ballet Le Corsaire, a pas de trois between the characters of Medora, the Slave and the Pirate.

In the second act, the show culminates with world premiere one-act ballet by Gladisa Guadalupe entitled Provocativo. Set in a late-night Argentinian café where artists gather to “loosen up” from their daily demands, the dancers find themselves exposed to seduction, passion, and to new love adventures. This piece will feature musicians performing live tango music on stage with the dancers during the performance. World renowned bandeon musician Julien Labro will perform on the stage with well-known musicians and Russian tenor Mikhail Urusov. Guadalupe picked up a set of Astor Piazzola and Carlos Gardel’s music for her choreography.
